Noodles Nail Polish Summer 2019 Collection Swatches and Reviews

*press samples*

I hope you're not sick of me yet! I know there was radio silence from me for several weeks, but I'm back with a vengeance. Surprise, Noodles has a new collection releasing Thursday, August 1st at 5 PM EST. It's a 6-piece set full of classic Noodles goodness...which you know means glitter, glitter, and more glitter! All polishes will retail for $9.50 each. Also releasing on Thursday is a brand new prototype which I do not have to share with you, so you'll have to stop by the Noodles website to check it out. Natalie usually has one big Black Friday sale a year, but she is bursting at the seams with polish, so most polishes (minus the new collection, of course), will be discounted. Not all final stock polishes will be on sale, but most will be. No code will be needed, and the discount will be reflected on the website. Woot! This is going to be an extremely picture-heavy post, so let's get into this. 

Best Techniques for Removing Glitter

Noodles Nail Polish are very glitter-heavy polishes, so I thought I'd mention the best techniques to remove glitter. Since they all contain glitter, so they will dry with some texture, so I recommend at least 1 coat of topcoat. If you are especially sensitive to feeling your polish, make sure your topcoat is a thick one, or apply a second coat of a thinner one. I use peel-off basecoats to make removal a breeze. I recommend UNT Ready for Take Off, or Hit the Bottle Keepin' it Peel as they both work well (I am not affiliated with either site or brand...I'm just sharing the love). The UNT works better for my body chemistry as the Hit the Bottle will sometimes pop off during the day. If you want your polish to last a little longer, I completely understand. In that case, the foil method will work best for you when you're ready for a change. Clips like these are cheap and great for keeping the cotton balls in place. I hope this helps, and feel free to email me or leave a comment with any questions you may have. 

Noodles Nail Polish Cabanas and Coladas (3 coats)

It wouldn't be a proper Noodles collection without a stark white crelly! Cabanas and Coladas is a white crelly base with bright blue/green/yellow hexagonal glitters and blue/silver holo glitters. This one dries with texture from the chunky glitters, so you may need to double up on the topcoat if you are extra sensitive to texture. I went ahead and used 3 thin coats for my photos, but you can get away with 2 if you don't mind a little VNL. 

Noodles Nail Polish Coastal (3 coats)

THIS BLUE! Coastal is a cornflower blue jelly base with holo flakes, small blue glitter, iridescent flakes/glitters, and a scattered holo finish. Since it is a jelly, I needed 3 thin coats for full opacity, but the formula was perfect. The amount of small glitter makes this more difficult to remove, but it's totally worth it. It dries slightly dull, so bust out that shiny topcoat. You know this bright beauty is a top recommendation. 

Noodles Nail Polish Havana Nights (3 coats)

Up next is Havana Nights which is an indigo crelly with pink/purple/copper glitters, and purple/red/orange UCC flakes. Basically it's a little dark blue, and a little bit violet. The glitter is more dispersed, so the removal was easier with this one. You know, and the flakes help with this as well. I used 3 thin coats to add some add some extra depth and dimension, but you should be able to get away with just 2. 

Noodles Nail Polish Island Dreams (2 coats)

As soon as I opened the box, I knew Island Dreams was a top pick. I actually audibly said, "Oh wow!" when I picked it up. It's a blue-green crelly base with silver holo flakes, silver holo glitters, and blue/green metallic microflakies. It has more flakes than glitter, so the removal was easy, and there was just a tiny bit of texture. It was also one of the most opaque polishes, so I used just 2 coats for my swatches. It didn't dry very shiny, so bust out that topcoat. 

Noodles Nail Polish Shore Thing (3 coats)

Shore Thing really demonstrates how great Natalie is at color-combinations. I never would have put these together, but it just works! It's a light beige (leans peach) crelly with neon purple/pink/orange hexagonal glitters and pink/holo glitters. I used 3 thin coats for my photos, and it dried with a lot of texture from the larger glitters. Make sure to read my recommendations for glitter removal above to make your life a little easier. 

Noodles Nail Polish Sweet Escape (3 coats)

Sweet Escape was not an expected top pick, but it really knocked my socks off. It's a bright fuchsia jelly base with blue/yellow/coral glitters, and silver holo glitters. Another point for Natalie for this hot color combination. I used 3 thin coats for full opacity (it is a jelly after all), and it dried with lots of texture. I would double-up on topcoat if you want a completely smooth nail.

Noodles never disappoints and always brings a smile to my face. Natalie is the glitter crelly queen, and it's easy to see why. My top picks would have to be Island Dreams, Coastal, and Sweet Escape, but you can't go wrong with any of them. These will be available on Thursday at 5 PM EST and will retail for $9.50 each. Don't forget, most final stock polishes will be on sale, so pick up your favorites while you still have the chance. You can find out more about Noodles Nail Polish on their websiteInstagram pageFacebook page, and Facebook Fan Group.
